Sixty Million Dollar Man (Chinese) 1995

Sixty Million Dollar Man

Synopsis / Plot
Stephen Chow plays one of his stock characters, a rich egotist who spends his days fooling others and generally acting stuck-up and snotty. At school, he teases nerdy classmate Gigi Leung and her father Tsui Kam-Kong, who also happens to be a wacky inventor. Stephen takes out his neighbor’s girl (Pauline Suen), and the two go to a local bar and engage in a jarring Pulp Fiction parody. Afterwards, her guy (Cheng Cho) comes after him and screws with him.
Stephen is saved by scientist Tsui, who rebuilds him as a shape shifting superhero, except he can only turn into household products (?). Undaunted, Stephen returns to his life by becoming a school teacher and charming the now-pretty Gigi Leung. And, events occur which give Stephen opportunities to turn into various household gadgets, i.e. a rice cooker, a toilet, etc. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it?

This time it’s a battle between security agencies, and the men known as Twin Blades (Chiang Sheng), Magnificent Kicks (Sun Chien), Sharp Axe (honorary “Venom” Wang Li), Magic Pole (Kuo Chue), and Golden Sword (Lu Feng) take each other on until the last drop of blood is spilled.

Four starving friends and their new friend are tricked by a madman into fighting each other.

Ectasy of the Angels (1972) (Japanese)

ecstasyofangels.jpg

The ’60s are definitely over in director Koji Wakamatsu’s outrageous look at the Japanese radical movement. A group of oversexed militants (named after the days of the week) try to steal weapons from a U.S Army base–Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are killed. Slowly, the surviving group members realize they’ve been betrayed by their own organization, and begin to wreak sexual and political anarchy on everything in sight. Between the 1960’s and early 1970’s, Japanese cinema literally exploded with some of the greatest genre filmmaking ever seen–a mindbending Cinemascope paradise of samurai swordfests, crazed yakuza thrillers and low-budget erotica. In conjunction with the American Cinematheque, Image Entertainment presents this rarely-seen Japanese cult film.

Genre: Drama
Rated: Unrated: Contains Violence and Sexual Situations
